Leonard F. Amari and John G. Locallo — partners in the Law Offices of Amari & Locallo — have been selected by their peers as Leading Lawyers in the category of Real Estate Law and Real Estate Taxes. Fellow partner Joseph F. Locallo III and associates Vesna Marusic and Vincent Oppedisano have been selected as Emerging Lawyers. The distinctions are earned by fewer than 2 percent of the nearly 89,000-plus licensed attorneys in the state of Illinois.
In addition, partner Katherine Amari-O’Dell has been selected to serve as one of two vice presidents of the Harwood Heights/Norridge Chamber of Commerce. A 2000 graduate of The John Marshall Law School, Amari-O’Dell served for three years as an assistant Cook County state’s attorney in the office’s Real Estate Tax Division before joining the firm.
With offices in Chicago and Bloomingdale, Amari & Locallo concentrates in reducing real estate taxes in Cook and the collar counties for all types of properties, emphasizing commercial, industrial and multi-unit residential. The firm also handles matters tangential to the real estate tax assessment process, including incentives, exemptions and zoning.
